It is a custom to eat fish at the Shabbos meals. One reason for this is that just as fish can't survive without water, so the Jews can't survive without Torah, which is compared to water. Many Jews have more time to study Torah on Shabbos. Eating fish also reminds us of the Livyoson, the great fish we will enjoy in Olam Haba, the time which will be like a Shabbos that lasts forever.
